Few data related to the care of children injured in an earthquake are available. The objective of our study was to analyze the results of clinical and microbiologic characteristics of children treated in a Fort de France hospital after the Haiti earthquake. Bacteria were mainly Gram-negative bacteria. Some of these infections seemed to be environmental; a significant portion was related to acquisition during hospitalization.
